REDNESDAY - LET'S BOOK IT!
Today I'm going to share some books that have red in them!
This first, We Like To Do Things, was an antique store find this past weekend. It's from 1949, doesn't have a back cover, and I paid $3.25 for it - way too much for its' condition, but the graphics are so awesome!
Hey, where are the child labor laws?
No child abuse here - just grandpa abuse!
Picking cherries? Sounds good to me!
I'm sure many of you are familiar with this darling book from 1945. A little bunny saw a cardinal and decided he wanted red wings, too. So he went to the wishing well, got his wings, and no one recognized him, even his mommy. So he had to go back and wish them away.
The next three books are family heirlooms. This first one is called Song and Study for God's Little Ones, copyright 1894.
It was my great grandmother's.
In this book, "Nearer My God to Thee" was called Bethany. "Come Thou Almighty King" is called Italian Hymn!
This book was my grandmother's.
It has no date, but I'm guessing early 20th century.
And, this one was my mother's.
Yes, her name was Agnes . . . and she had red hair!
Now, this adorable little book is from Made In Pixieland. And, guess what? It's not a book! It's a secret book.
I recently put a gnome and mushroom inside it!
